Break the Habit

Are habits such as thumb sucking or tongue thrusting evident in your child? These may be symptoms that point to a need for a dental examination. Habits such as these can be a pre-cursor to orthodontic issues in the long-term. If these are observed with your child, then consider visiting Pacific Dental Care for a check-up.

Children that develop these habits frequently display them at a young age. They naturally disappear as your child ages, and may no longer be a concern after a certain period of time. However, some of these habits may remain persistent for longer periods and make specialized appliances necessary. These are habit appliances that are designed to correct these conditions.

Habit appliances, once placed on your child’s teeth, help prevent and discourage the occurrence of these symptoms. In addition, they also reduce the risk of teeth moving out of proper alignment. These are available from the dentists at Pacific Dental Care. For additional information about these orthodontic instruments, schedule an appointment at our office.
